How Horoscopes Help With Career And Occupation

Some of us make wild leaps from one career path to another; one year serving drinks as a bartender, the next helping children as a schoolteacher! Others seem to have been born knowing the right job for them. There was once a time when everyone who had a job took on the same occupation as his or her parents. It isn't quite as simple anymore, but there was still a destiny created for you at the moment of your birth! You just might not be following in the footsteps of your mother or father!
It is true that some sun signs are overrepresented in some career paths due to the traits that lend themselves to such an ability! Fire signs, like Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can be natural leaders, and would do well to select a role in which their passion for what they do light fires in the hearts of others. Water signs like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces have a more receptive energy, well-suited to a quieter career helping others as a therapist or even a doctor with their spiritual gifts. Air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius might well use their cunning minds for science, the world of computers or working with words as writers or editors. Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn usually value a stable income, and can be quite happy to work outdoors or with their hands.
Take a glance at your natal chart with a good astrologer to see what planets are in your tenth and eleventh houses. These areas will not only show you what occupations match well with your ambitions, but also what career paths are likely to place you in association with the type of people who will be successful team-members in your life. If you're feeling a little disillusioned by how much of your destiny is wrapped up in your stars, take heart. There is a lot of leeway here! If your natal chart shows you being drawn again and again to teaching, it doesn't mean you have to be up front with a ruler and a blackboard! Passing ideas on to others can be done in many forms, and it can still mean that your dream of being an actor or an actress can come true for you if you find a way to educate others while you do it!
Using your horoscope to plan your career path is all about taking the easy way to your goals. Once you've determined the strengths associated with your sun sign, you can also use your horoscope to plan each step along your path! For example, if you are planning on becoming a scientist, pay close attention to what Uranus is doing in the sky at any point in time! If you work in telecommunications, keep your finger on the pulse of Mercury to catch your chances at success and avoid major pitfalls!
If you're looking to show off in an interview, make sure that Venus is positioned in your favor so that you can be as charming as possible to your future employer! Don't send in your resume during the dark moon, but rather, use it as a time to rest and to make sure that everything in your application materials is up to date!
You may already know that sun signs can be very compatible with each other or can be antagonists from the start in relationships. The same holds true for work relationships as for romance as far as sun sign compatibility is concerned! When you start a new job, asking for peoples' sun sign can be a good conversation starter and ice breaker as well as a way to find out which people should be avoided and which people will soon become close allies!
Don't stop reading your horoscope just because your career path is back on track! Astrology can be used in the business world to make the best decisions to not only keep your job but also to flourish in your position, get raises and look wonderful to your colleagues and superiors! If you are involved in the hiring and firing decisions, you can even use horoscopes to help evaluate the energies that you are adding to your company according to compatibility and their natal charts! An ancient practice in China, many modern companies the world over are still using astrology and horoscopes for staffing purposes as well as to make decisions that otherwise might be left up to pure chance.
